I've been around the writing block more than once...but I've yet to see my book on a bookshelf. Why, you might ask? I've asked myself that question more times than I'd like--and others have asked it of me. I believe I can string sentences together pretty well; I have a fantastic critque group; I studied the craft. I've even had a few people credit me with helping them push their way from unsold to sold. So why haven't I sold a book yet? And more importantly, why have I kept writing?
There have been times I wanted to quit; times I wondered if it was worth it. Then I'd dream the stories again and realize, for good or for bad, I'm a storyteller. I want to share my stories with the world.
So, what's stopped me?
